Some beach long exposures, in B&W; this kind of shots has probably been done ad nauseam, but I felt I had to try them myself.

As always, all C&C is very welcome.

I feel that you have to make the focal point more interesting. It isn't enough to smooth the water out.  Wink

I think Stamper is right; one can indeed get caught up in the experiment rather than in the image the experiment is producing.

As an idea (dangerous to offer them, always!), in the shot with the two depth poles, why not clone them so that the two show the same level but at clearly different heights? A sort of visual joke... I accept that humour is a deadly game.

Three nice abstract studies.
I prefer the first one.
Go on!

I like them. They have a classic elegance. The water is subtly there, but isn't really the subject.
Very nice!

I see... these are my first experiments with this technique, indeed; now I know how I must improve in this field, thank you.

I liked your advice as soon as I read your message, and I liked it even more when I saw the results; brilliant idea, I hate you now.

This joke brought back to my memory the work of Chema Madoz (no implicit comparison, of course); his portfolio is worth a visit, in my humble opinion.

I am glad to know you liked them; thanks!

The top image is the most impressive of the group.

Nice exposure, great composition and use of diagonal lines.

I particularly like your use of time exposure to create contrasting textures - with the water movement, the board walk, the concrete, and the chrome rail, you've really created a sophisticated look.

Another word on the composition - although it feels a bit lonely, it also has an air of solitude and tranquility.

I really like the starkness and simplicity of the third one.  Also, it almost looks like a very fine pencil drawing.

Just another one... perhaps I should have focused on the fisherman at the right pier; but I doubt he would have been able to stand still for five minutes, anyway.

I agree that the first one is very nice ... made me stop and think about all that might go on in that area, now deserted.

The other two are pleasant also, but didn't make me stop and look as long as the first one did.
